Awards Available: 8

Given to students at a four-year school entering their junior or senior year. Students must be a U.S. citizen and a resident of one of the eight RMCMI member states and looking for a career in the coal industry. The scholarships are $2,750 per year and may be given for up to two years. The selected students are also offered an all-expense paid trip to the RMCMI Annual Meeting and Convention in late June where they have the opportunity to meet industry leaders and attend all of the technical sessions.

The following are the scholarship criteria. Each applicant MUST be:

1. A full-time COLLEGE SOPHOMORE or JUNIOR in good standing at the time of selection;

2. Both a U.S. citizen and a legal resident of one of the Rocky Mountain Coal Mining Institute member states - Arizona, Colorado, Montana, New Mexico, North Dakota, Texas, Utah, or Wyoming;

3. Pursuing a degree in a mining-related field or in the engineering disciplines such as mining, geology, mineral processing, metallurgy, electrical, mechanical and environmental; and,

4. Have an expressed interest in Western coal as a career path.

Scholarship selection is managed as follows:

1. The Rocky Mountain Scholarship Chairman will distribute scholarship applications to interested academic institutions. Among these are the University of Arizona, Colorado School of Mines, University of Missouri at Rolla, Montana Tech, New Mexico Tech, University of North Dakota, South Dakota School of Mines, Texas A&M University, University of Utah and others. Applications will also be sent to the Mines within the Institute member states. Nominations will be accepted only from students meeting the scholarship criteria.

2. It is the intention of the Rocky Mountain Coal Mining Institute to award a scholarship to a resident candidate from each member state as listed above. Applications from each state will be reviewed and rated by the Scholarship Committee. Interview of top candidates may be conducted. However, if there is no candidate acceptable to the Scholarship Committee from a particular state, no award will be given for that state.

3. The scholarship is continuous and may be renewed at the close of the recipient's junior or senior year upon recommendation from the dean of the college or university involved, provided that the recipient is still a full-time student in good academic standing. It is the recipient's responsibility to reaffirm their eligibility to the satisfaction of the Scholarship Committee.
